Offer: ARC of The House of Discarded Dreams

Item Name & Description: One signed advance reading copy of my novel, The House of Discarded Dreams, upcoming in July 2010. Back cover description:

"Vimbai moves into a dilapidated house in the dunes, trying to escape her embarrassing immigrant mother... and discovers that one of her new roommates has a pocket universe instead of hair, there is a psychic energy baby living in the telephone wires, and her dead Zimbabwean grandmother is doing dishes in the kitchen.

When the house gets lost at sea and creatures of African urban legends all but take it over, Vimbai has to turn to horseshoe crabs in the ocean, to ask for their help in getting home to New Jersey."

This is my fourth novel. My previous one is The Alchemy of Stone; I also occasionally edit anthologies.

Starting Price: $10

Notes: It's an uncorrected proof, so expect typos and other scandalous things.

Reminder: Bidding doesn't open until Wednesday, February 24th. Do not bid until then.
